Meet the Owner


Hello, I’m Chantelle, the heart behind Storybook Bridal in Shellharbour, nestled on the scenic New South Wales South Coast. As the eldest of 7 sisters, my innate passion for creating magical moments led me here.

After years of being the go-to for celebrations, my wedding planning journey sparked a revelation: I wanted to craft unforgettable bridal moments. Named for my love of ‘happily ever afters,’ Storybook Bridal is more than a boutique; it’s a haven where brides escape wedding planning monotony.

Join us for a unique, intimate experience, surrounded by love, laughter, and beautiful gowns. I am Chantelle, inviting you to share in the joy of finding THE ONE with my dedicated team.

Do you do onsite alterations?

No, we don't do alterations, however we can defiantly point you in the direction of some of the best local seamstresses

When should I order my dress

We recommend at LEAST 8 months prior to your wedding. This will avoid rush fees and will give you a window to get any required alterations completed.

Do you charge appointment fees?

Yes, we have a $40 appointment fee which is redeemable on any gown purchase. We also offer a complimentary 30 minute follow up appointment so you can try on your favourite gowns a second time; we know it's a big decision for our brides and we don't want you to feel rushed.

Can I take photos during my appointment?

Absolutely! In fact, we encourage it! Photos and videos are a great tool to help you decide if this is the perfect dress for your day.

Can I bring my family and friends to my appointment?

Defiantly! Your bride drive is so important. We have room to comfortably seat 5 guests and we'll happily spoil you all with champagne while we play the ultimate dress ups!

Do you cater for all sizes?

Of course! Our samples range in sizes from 8-18, but our girls are very crafty with helping you see any of our gowns on any shape body.
